Know How:

I joined the freelance market in 2013, after leaving an internal, corporate, photo job. I started assisting in Boston for well known food photographers and that grew into work with other photographers, ranging from specialties in Architectural, Editorial Portrait, Still Life/Product, Fashion, and Lifestyle photography. Since 2013, I've assisted over two dozen photographers from the Greater Boston area, and photographers working on-location in New England from NYC. I've also travelled with my photographers to as far West as California and as far south as Florida.

My greatest skillset is my lighting ability. Nowadays a lot of faith is placed in me to light a scene without too much direction from the photographer. I do prefer to discuss all decisions before I start moving lights around, and am always amendable to a change in direction or style as dictated by the photographer. At the end of the day, a

successful shoot should leave the photographer feeling like "everything was clicking" between everyone involved in production. I see my job as to make things as simple and painless as possible, for everyone.

I'm familiar with all major camera systems, and newer mirrorless players. I'm always equipped to tech as needed, within while tethering to Capture One, Lightroom, or over a wifi device.

I'm always open to new challenges and exciting work, but I also understand that some shoots are routine and not too flashy, so I'm comfortable in every situation - from "hurry-up and wait"-shoots to a steady flow of shots packed into one day - or several days.

I'm a dog person, a (mostly) vegetarian - I eat fish occasionally, I always eat lunch (food is fuel for the body and mind), and if there's an Adirondack chair set next to a lake or mountain, you'll find me there.
